We were very fortunate to be having dinner on a Saturday night in June. The weather was brisk (with the restaurant perfectly heated!) and the skies were clear. The restaurant is beautiful...a modern glass cube centered in the 16th century building that is now The Museum. I mention the weather because it happen to be a celebration in Cusco so... More

This restaurant was in one of the most beautiful settings, and the price was reasonable (with the USD exchange rate). The scallops were definitely memorable.
